Dolly’s Splash Country Water Park
It’s summer. And it’s HOT, even in the Great Smoky Mountains! For a full day of ‘gettin cool,’ head to Dollywood’s Splash Country in Pigeon Forge.
Dolly’s Splash Country is more than just a water park. Of course there are exciting water adventure slides and thrill rides – 23 of them – but there are also two interactive children’s playground areas: the Cascades, an 8,000-sq.-ft. lagoon-style pool that features a cascading waterfall and interactive slides, and Little Creek Falls, an exciting and safe place for the younger kids to play for hours in a pool with slides and an activity center.
There are so many exciting and thrilling rides, you won’t know which ones to try first! Here are just a few descriptions to “wet” your appetite!
Slick Rock Racer is multi-lane mats slide spanning 300 feet and features four lanes. Positioned belly down on mats, each rider travels head first on a channel that includes an initial dip to build speed. Multiple bumps along the length of the slide allow riders to gain additional momentum that propels them to the finish.
Raging River Rapids is a raft ride that gives you endless adventure and the experience of riding the white waters of the Great Smoky Mountains. You will get soaked on the 700-foot Raging River Rapids. Each raft holds up to five people, but there’s no limit to the fun on this exciting ride.
Big Bear Plunge - Take the “plunge” on this extreme white water rafting adventure ride that takes you banking through dark caverns with winding bends and steep drops reminiscent of challenging river expeditions. You’ll crash through a wall of water just before sliding down the bumpy cliff that sends you splashing into the pool below.
Splash Country is open every day through August 19, after which it will be open weekends only. The last day of the 2012 season is Labor Day, Monday September 3. Hours are 10 a.m. – 6 p.m.
